WU'S SEVERE WEATHER MAP FOR THE NORTHEAST REGION
Below are three examples of lovely fall foliage photos, taken by three different photographers from a cross section in our Commonwealth or New England:
The first is by Bellatroubaile from Chelmsford, MA and whose town is approx. 17 miles from me. It is called, "FALL GLOW", and was taken and uploaded 09-14-10.
Subsequently, this one is called, "MEET ME BY THE BRIDGE" by Stoneygirl, Millbury, MA and was uploaded on 09-26-10 also under Approved WU photos.
I think the severe New England drought, which lasted most of this past summer, has had its effects on our trees rather early, especially, the swamp maples. A lot of us can equate to the abundance of acorns dropping from our nearby oak trees. They're falling like amunition and leaving a thick crunchy carpet on the ground! Wish someone would invent a reasonably priced, easier maneuvering giant lawn vacuum which bags and disposes!!
Finally, one of my all time favorite pictures taken by WILDJACK, once of WU, on Oct. 26, 2007 while in Lowell, MA. (About one town over from me). It certainly captures one of the many scenic views from along parts of the miles long Merrimack River.
